3 Ways to Eco-Clean Your Fridge

Let's face it-no kitchen appliance gets more traffic than the refrigerator, and all that use means it's prone to mess. The next time is due for cleaning, consider using eco-friendly agents that are just as effective. The best part? They'll save you serious green!

Oust Odors

With varied foods stored inside, its no wonder refrigerators are susceptible to odor. To eliminate unpleasant smells remove the offending item and place an open box of baking soda in the back of your fridge. Baking soda has absorption properties that neutralize odor to keep your fridge smelling fresh, no matter its contents!

Banish Chemicals

To clean the inside of your fridge ( and other areas of your home ),mix up a large batch of non-toxic cleaner made of equal parts tap water and distilled white vinegar. Heat up the solution in a microwave-safe container to zap any bacteria and wipe down all shelves and drawers inside your fridge. Don't forget the sides!

Go Natural

Rather than using a commercial refrigerator cleaner, like stainless steel sprays, combine warm water with a drop or two of natural dish soap. Store -bought cleaners often release chemicals that cause indoor air pollution, and natural soap won't irritate sensitive skin. To remove fingerprints or smudges, wet a soft cloth and with the solution and wipe down doors.
